Eleven Years by Jen Davis

11 years by Jen Davis 1 11 years by Jen Davis 2 11 years by Jen Davis 3 11 years by Jen Davis 4 11 years by Jen Davis 5 11 years by Jen Davis 6 11 years by Jen Davis 7 11 years by Jen Davis 8 11 years by Jen Davis 9 11 years by Jen Davis 10 11 years by Jen Davis 11 11 years by Jen Davis 12 11 years by Jen Davis 13 11 years by Jen Davis 14 11 years by Jen Davis 15 11 years by Jen Davis 16

A photographer’s exploration of her own insecurities, ideals of beauty and love and intimacy in the form of a series of self-portraits taken over 11 years eventually inspired her to lose 110 lb.

The photographs Jen Davis began taking of herself in 2002 have been gathered in a new book, 11 Years, which shows her journey in the form of deeply intimate self-portraits.

It was after her series had received critical acclaim and had been showcased around the world in 2011 that Davis realized that her body had not really changed over the years – and neither had she.

Bare Bears by Deborah Simon

These bears are so awesome!

Artist Deborah Simon‘s series of Flayed Bear Sculptures combine taxidermy, science and embroidery. Her three unusual bear sculptures have faux fur partially pulled back to reveal the anatomy underneath.

Deborah created the project both prior to and during her residency at New York’s Sculpture Space and describes the process as follows:

“The bears play with ideas around stuffed toys, taxidermy and classification. They especially interest me as bears are the ultimate stuffed animals; both the iconic plush toy and the prized taxidermy specimen for hunters. Most of all the sculptures deal with vulnerability; the vulnerability that the animals face from environmental degradation, conflicts with people, suburban sprawl and poaching. I particularly find the dichotomy between the defanged, declawed childhood toy and the fierce reality of a top predator fascinating.

The bears – polar, grizzly, black, and panda – are about toy size and seated like a plush toy bear. Their fur is removed on the body, leaving a linen skin, as if they’d been flayed or like undressed porcelain dolls, with the hard sculpted fur covered head and paws connected to the soft linen body. At Sculpture Space I started the black bear, creating the foam body, sewed the linen and fur, sculpted the head and mapped out the embroidery of the spine and nervous system.”

Guillaume Herbaut’s series, “The New Amazons”, brought him to the Brejnev district in Kiev, Ukraine, where he took portraits of the controversial feminist group Femen. Femen activists strive to fight sexual tourism and to educate women to be more assertive and powerful. They use their bodies as weapons and protest nude, or topless, in the streets in order to achieve their goals.

Sacha Chevtchenko, the founding member, explained: “One day, we don’t know why, one of us, Kseniya Chatchko, undressed, and we saw that the people, the press, started to see us and to listen to us.”

Since then, activists come together and protest topless weekly. Each time, they gain more attention, which suits their agenda as they want to affect women’s rights not only in Ukraine, but globally, and become an international feminist group. They currently have over 300 members and are based in France.

The young women, armed simply with colorful wreaths, ribbons, and for the most part, thin, fragile-looking bodies, are boldly standing up to the male dominated politics of their country, and are regularly arrested. Don’t let appearances get in the way: these girls are fierce.

Mirror Neurons by Marco Scozzaro

mirror-neurons_02 mirror-neurons_01 mirror-neurons_03 mirror-neurons_04 mirror-neurons_05 mirror-neurons_06 mirror-neurons_07

“Mirror neurons are a family of neural cells considered to be the neurological base of imitation. I used this scientific element as a starting point to reflect on how different people follow the same way of thinking. It’s a projection on personal feelings such as solitude, detachment, shyness and the urge to connect with others.”
- Marco Scozzaro

In his series Mirror Neurons, Brooklyn-based photographer Marco Scozzaro takes a creative moment to reflect on conformism. He began by photographing a series of nudes in front of a neutral background and had the models wear a pair of skin color tights as a metaphor for conformism. Like most of his projects, Scozzaro creates simple and beautiful images with subtle elements, allowing for different layers of interpretation. After completing the series, Scozzaro realized that this work extends its topic to a broader range of issues including identity, gender, and relationships.

Mademoiselles – Parisian Women – by Natasha Gudermane

The photo series ‘Mademoiselles’ is an extensive collection of nudes by Paris-based photographer Natasha Gudermane. A mix of friends and strangers she met on the streets of Paris, Gudermane captured her subjects in their homes amongst their things, making for unique and intimate portraits.

“Being a foreigner in Paris and feeling slightly de-rooted, I tried to get closer to the things and people around me by studying and understanding them. Thus I started to make portraits of Parisian women. I use my work as a means to approach and better undertstand these women, who I first found to be quite different. Having nothing on to cover their bodies, my models seem to envelope themselves in their souls. It is this magic moment I am trying to capture in my lens”, Natasha Gudermane says.
